Why Taking The Covert Protection Course

The course will prepare candidates to protect a Principal in less intrusive mode.

Our covert protection course is a specialist executive protection training program designed for both bodyguards and aspirants seeking a top-tier course to broaden existing or gain new skills in the domain of close protection. 

Nowadays, certain Principals don't want highly visible foot formations of security detail nor very noticeable VIP motorcade, nor they too much interference in their business/personal affairs. Likewise, in some cases, an overt method of providing executive protection cannot be applied since operational requirements (environment, risk level, threat type). This suggests the employment of a specialist method of close protection – the Covert Protection or Protective Surveillance – to protect the Principal in a low-profile and unobtrusive way.


Whatever the reason for using this distinctive protection would be, it requires highly skilled executive protection specialists. Taking this into account, Nemesis Protection, as a premium provider of personal security services, has designed this unique training program to prepare you for this complex undertaking. The course will upgrade your professional performance and take your career to the next level.
